Astro Smash 'n' Blast!

NES

Description:

(Originally released 10/23/2022)

The sky is falling! The sky is falling!

Your base of operations is the last line of defense against an imminent disaster. Big rocks and lil rocks are pounding the earth. Making matters worse, extra terrestrials or some rogue government are sending over spinner missiles and pulsar bombs designed to end your day and make sure you and yours can never phone home again.

5 hits and maybe 3 minutes… That’s all you have to prevent the onslaught in this score attack. Well… that an a base armed to the teeth with missiles (B button), hyperspace / teleport capability, (A button) and auto fire (SELECT button).

A homage to the original concepts from Intellivision classic Astrosmash and its Atari successor Astroblast, this game was coded in 6502 Assembly and compiled using Notepad and CA65, with CHR data (including background nametables) developed via MS Paint, TileMolester, and NES Lightbox. No code was ported from either the Atari or the Intellivision games; this fully written by hand for the NES.

How many points will you rack up before it’s “game over, man; game over”? How high can you make your peak score???
